No one wants rats and mice in their property. They can pose a serious health and safety hazard, not only because they carry germs but also because they can gnaw through electric cables, causing severe damage to your home.Rodents are most likely to invade your home during the fall when they start looking for a warm place to shelter as the weather gets cooler. But realistically they can arrive at any time of year, causing you a great deal of stress and anxiety. Putting out poison or traps might get rid of a few rodents but hiring a professional exterminator can ensure the problem is resolved for good.
